This Sukkot, join Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and partners Romemu Yeshiva, Shamir Collective, Jewish Studio Project, JArts, Mitsui Collective, Hadar, and Svara for a virtual afternoon of learning focused on joy, ritual, and the 2nd Temple practice of the Simchat Beit HaShoeivah, the joyous water drawing ceremony that occurred each year in Jerusalem during the intermediate days of Sukkot. We will draw from our own wellsprings of joy through learning, creative arts, embodied ritual, and a concert with Joey Weisenberg. All are welcome!
What can I expect?
The program will begin with a shiur (class) from Hadar about the ritual of Simchat Beit Hashoeivah in ancient times, followed by a selection of activities and learning sessions with our partner organizations. This event will conclude with a concert led by Joey Weisenberg. Participants will receive recordings of the entire event, including breakout sessions you did not attend.
